HUNGER’S MVP of the week

Welcome to HUNGER’s Most Valuable Player, the place to find the best things to buy, watch, do or listen to each week. Forget about the hype, we want to separate what’s hot, what’s not, and what needs to be on your radar…

Another week, another HUNGER’s MVP, and another collaboration worth the money. 

As always, there have been some notable drops, like the new Stüssy x Our Legacy collection which boasts another array of re-worked items including the usual graphic collaboration tees, plaid shirts, boxer shorts and blazers. Or maybe you’ve got your eyes on Seth Rogan’s latest Houseplant designs, which bring Soho House aesthetics together with joint-rolling ease (think rolling papers, an ashtray, and a grinder on one ceramic tray). 

Perhaps this week’s MVP should come in the form of hot shit fashion from the Colorado Desert. Like headline act Harry Styles gracefully throwing off his coat to reveal the sparkly, rainbow sequined Gucci jumpsuit that stole the show. Like a big 70s disco ball dancing next to Shania Twain and performing his new hit, As It Was, which is gearing up to top the charts for a third week, Styles’ talk-of-the-town outfit was trumped only by one other…

In custom Valentino, American heartthrob Conan Gray stood on stage like an ethereal, pink flag in the wind. The outfit became not only reminiscent of billowy, oversized dresses twirling in the summer sun at Woodstock, but brought a different light to the artist’s love-torn songs about heartbreak and relatable despair.

However, whilst the week has not been short of memorable moments, it’s the latest offerings from Ganni that nabs the top spot… again. The Danish fashion brand has returned with another collab with Priya Ahluwalia’s eponymous label to deliver a range of reworked denim, created with sustainability firmly in mind. The 16 different styles have been constructed and upcycled out of deadstock denim, all under the vision of ‘what we have is what we need’. It’s a creative tête-à-tête that celebrates the euphoria of freedom after the last few years that we’ve had.

“Priya and I are creatively completely in sync so it was a dream for me to work on this collection with her and I loved the dogma of designing an entire collection out of my favourite fabric, denim!” Ganni’s Creative Director says. “We both try to see possibilities in everything, so giving new life to deadstock material is the perfect way for us to show our community the value of upcycled items. This collection is all about celebrating the things we missed during lockdown, feeling new energy and getting euphoric about life again.”
